Maledrakh's Arachno-Assassin Drummer

Recommended Posts

I have been rooting around in the boxes of yore, and this gem was found hidden away deep within a pile of ancient metal.

This one was built and partly painted, but also slightly damaged. The wrists have been bent to reposition the drumsticks, and one of them had snapped off. Some quick repairs and a sloppy paintjob later, ta-daa:

The "Arachno-Assassins" are a small lineup of six-armed skeletons that Reaper originally released sometime around the turn of the century in their white metal Dark Heaven line. They seem to still be available from Reaper, although none of them have made it into Bones PVC, which might be indicative of their sales potential. This is a pity as some of them are quite nice.

I bought a few of them back in the day, and still have some in various states from bare metal through undercoated to painted-and-stashed-away-somewhere.

Well, this one is done at long last. A bit crude, but still. Done.

Hit me with your rhythm stick, hit me, hit me!

Hit me slowly, hit me quick, hit me, hit me, hit...me!

For some obscure reason, this mini made me think of the song by Ian Dury.

Cool figure - don't sell yourself short on the paint job - really like the dark/worn circles in the middle of the drums and I like the flowers in the base!
